In this video, we break down whether or not Delta 8 shows up on a drug test or not. As CBD continues to make its way around the world, the craze has consumers curious about the possibilities of other cannabinoids beyond the traditionally-known cannabis molecule, delta-9 THC. The new up-and-comer seems to be delta-8 THC, which is known to cause effects similar to delta-9, though tends to impart a more subdued, controlled experience.

Delta-8’s rise in popularity is largely thanks to the 2018 Farm Bill, legislation that has permitted hemp-derived products in all 50 U.S. states. Delta-8 THC preparations can be derived from hemp and contain less than .3%, thus making them a hemp product that can be widely sold and distributed similar to CBD products (though some states have additional delta-8 specific laws).

So, will you fail a drug test if you take delta-8 THC?

Unfortunately, the answer is likely yes. As we said, drug tests are not finely tuned, and the room for error is far and wide. The chances of delta-8 THC showing up on any generic drug test is not zero, simply put.

In fact, if you’re taking an at-home test, the THC is even more likely to show up. This is because at-home testing is typically the least advanced of all drug tests. These tests cannot differentiate from cannabinoids, which is why they’ll pop positive for CBD as well.

Whether you’re consuming delta-9 THC from marijuana or delta-8 THC from hemp, the cannabinoids metabolize into the same THC metabolites in your body. That means consuming any amount of any THC can cause you to fail a drug test.

The legal limit is 0.03% delta-9 THC in a CBD or hemp-derived product. You can, however, be taking more than the recommended daily serving sizes, which means the 0.3% THC has the ability to build up in your system. There’s a real possibility that your delta 8 use will show up on a drug test, depending on how often you consume it.
